Fishing Reports

Plan your next fishing charter aboard the MV Manutere out of Tauranga, Bay of Plenty, NZ.

Back in business!!!

Back in business after a combined weather and maintenance break.  And some great weather to kick off with.

We headed out to the Astrolabe and had an excellent start with a lot of snapper coming up.   Quite a few undersize, but plenty of good ones amongst them.

We swung off the mark quite a bit but then started getting tarakihi predominately, with a few undersize kingies in the mix.

We reanchored  a couple of times when they slowed down, continuing to do well  as we got back onto them. A great day in all respects.

Saturday was another good one. The weather was cloudy initially, but beautiful by the afternoon. A little bit slower fishing initially, as the current had picked up in the interim, but that eased after the tide change, the fish started feeding harder and we ended up with a similar result  to the Thursday.

So hopefully the bush telegraph is working and we start getting a few more phonecalls


  • Thanks for a fabulous day on the water. Just ate some great fish and washed it down with nz Pinot.

  • Hi Daphne ,

    Please thank Brett for a great trip the other day

    We didn’t get on to the Kingi’s on this occasion but we do appreciate the conditions were against us and we know Brett did everything possible . Still, everyone got plenty of fillets to take home and we thoroughly enjoyed the day

    You will see us again and we will recommend you

    Well, we are all home from a wonderful day out. This is a thank you to all the crew from all of us.

    The whanau had a memorable and happy day out on the sea. Everyone caught a fish, so no household went without.

    Also, thank you for being so good to our kids - I hope they didn't get in your way too much. But they enjoyed their day and had their own thrills on the boat.

    It was a good day - and when our families do this again we’ll definitely be back.


    Have an awesome and happy year.

    Kind Regards,
    Dawn A. Whare
